Uterine fibroids are non-cancerous tumors that develop on or in the uterus. They often cause pelvic pain, heavy menstrual bleeding and uncomfortable pressure on the bladder or rectum, and can lead to problems with fertility.
One of the treatments offered by Virtua interventional radiologists is uterine fibroid embolization (UFE). UFE is a minimally invasive procedure that uses tiny pellets to block blood flow to uterine fibroids. Without blood, the fibroid tissue dies and shrinks.
Virtua interventional radiologists are experienced in UFE and magnetic resonance guided focused ultrasound surgery (MRgFUS) for the treatment of uterine fibroids.
